My Favourite Top 5

Hello, hope you all had a very good Christmas and got some lovely goodies.  I had a quiet but lovely Christmas and got eight sets of House Mouse stamps from Joanna Sheen off my hubby.
I haven't used any yet but just starting to get back to my desk to do some crafting, thought I would use the last few days to have a real good tidy and organise of my space.

Debby is doing a "Favourite Top 5" and I have never done it before so thought I'd give it a whirl, you can find her's here.

So here's mine, it's really hard isn't it, to whittle it down to just five once you get going, I don't usually like my own work much and thought I'd only be able to find a couple, but oh no I was shocked at how many I actually thought about using.  Then my next problem was to make sure they weren't all House Mouse LOL!

January 2012

My first DT creation for House Mouse challenge team, I just love how this turned out. All the embellishments were handmade, diecut and punched.

March 2012

This is something totally out of my comfort zone, the colours are not my usual at all. Quite dark for me. But I loved the challenge of this one, and loved how the stamping around the image worked out.
You can find it here

June 2012

I had to pick a boys card as I do struggle with them, and this LOTV footballer reminds me of my youngest son.
You can find it here

July 2012

This one is where I tried to do a kind of masculine flower, it needed embellishing and I couldn't think of anything else which would suit my favourite Penny Black Image.
You can find it here

October 2012

This is my all time favourite stamp, and I had to end on a House Mouse.  I love the CAS look of this and how anyone not go Aww to this poor little mouse.
You can find it here

So there you have it, I managed to stick to five although I could have gone on.
